      Come on! lets be civil about this…Hang em high?? I can imagine the face behind those comments.SMDH I don’t condone what these lowlife punks are doing by invading the privacy of others and they should be punished to the full extent of the law but let him have his day in court and hopefully he spends enough time in jail to evaluate his life and get the help that he needs to come out and make a positive contribution to society. Imagine if that were your family member, would you like for them to be hung, lets be honest!

        Your should change your name to Dreamer!

        • Thoughtful says:

          I would rather be a dreamer than to be an idiotic loser that agrees with HANGING someone because they broke into someones house. Are you serious….what a sad pathetic loser. I have had it happen to me but I still don’t share your views. I bet your full name is ANN IDIOT….it suits you!

      • Hair says:

        thoughtful, wait till it happens to you, you may have a different attitude…

        • Thoughtful says:

          @Hair, I’m glad you said that because IT DID HAPPEN TO ME! On top of that I was home. I have forgiven him since then. As matter of fact I ended up running into him in town one day that led to us communicating a few times. He has turned his life around and come to find out he is a very talented artist.He realized that he could never repay me because I never recovered my goods but has made my family a very beautiful portrait. thanks for jumping to conclusions you made my point…everyone deserves a chance especially when there are underlying issues that needed to be addressed. BTW I wrote a letter to the editor some years back about my story.

    Public nuisance!!

    • Toodle-oo says:

      When they get into your house and ransack it and steal irreplaceable items that are special to you I promise you you’ll be using terms much stronger than public nuisances and little buggers .

      Throw the keys away ? H**l yes !

  4. Kangoocar says:

    Part of his sentence in jail should be a “taser”‘ treatment 3 times a day so he doesn’t forget why he is in jail!

    • Thoughtful says:

      Yeah really?? Always looking for attention you! Taser 3 times AFTER he has been tried and convicted of his wrong doing? The father has a way of punishing people like you, so when you get that bad pain in your chest remember all the terrible things that you have wished upon others….that may be YOUR punishment you poor excuse for a human being!

  5. An ex cop says:

    If that man was carrying a bladed article when he was caught, imagine what would’ve happened if he was confronted by the home owners. I would have no hesitation taking out an intruder….bottom line is you never know what state of mind they’re in. As much as I believe in rehabilitation, I think a lesson needs to be learnt here. Cane his bottom until his skin is ripped to shreds and he can’t sit for a month.

    There will come a day when forensic science will have to play a part in these useless robberies.

  7. Ty says:

    If convicted, make them paint the entire building with a toothbrush while wearing a T-shirt that says…. ‘I GOT CAUGHT TRYING TO ROB THESE GUYS – I AM A MORON’.

    • Thoughtful says:

      I totally agree, it has been proven to work even in countries with a very large population with majority of people don’t know you have never seen you before. Can you imagine with the small population we have in Bermuda were everyone knows everyone or has at least seen you once before… Public shaming works. When these criminals go to court and their names are published, how many times do you know or recognize them….but when there is a face to those names like public shaming will just about deter anyone with a conscience unless they just don’t give a f@#k but then again they have other issues that needs addressing.
